Hi everyone, my mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and ovarian cancer in the same week one year ago. She had cancer surgery and chemo, which was very difficult for all involved, but she is doing well now. The struggle now is that the Alzheimer's symptoms are getting worse and she refuses to admit it or accept much help. She gets angry with me when I try to help but is lovely to everyone else. Whenever I ask for advise I am told there is not much that can be done at this stage, just help her to stay independent for as long as possible. But, she is not completely independent as she could not manage without the help I give.
